New 007 Trailer, Scientology and Politics

New Quantum of Solace Trailer - A new trailer for Bond 22 that is much more kinetic but still mysterious on what the story is about.

Scientology Issues DMCA Takedown Notices - As per its usual methods, Scientology attempted to fight the truth by hiding it. In this case they sent out 4000 takedown notices to YouTube, which per its policy it automatically grants. In turn, counter-notices where filed and the videos restored. Net result was a whole lot of time wasted but its just further proof of just how nasty the cult is.

Obama Blasts the Distractions - At the end of the day the Republican Party runs on two things. Fear and distractions. If look at the core "promises" of the campaign, McCain is promising four more years and not a whole lot else. As part of that he keeps harping on irrelevant things like gaffes and his POW record while completely ignoring the issues. Obama pretty much sums up what I think. I could care less about verbal mistakes; I could care less about how they dress or talk how a candidate does in a sport or appeared in a pageant. I just want to know why your way is the best way to improve the country. McCain refuses to talk about these things, which tells me he isn't really interested in the issues. As a result, I am not interested in him.

Matt Damon on Palin - Matt Damon pretty much sums up just how screwy and dangerous a choice that Sarah Palin is as Vice President. The press doesn't talk about it, but she could become President of the United States. Is she an exactly of someone you want leading the country?
